For anybody that has installed air. What side and location did you install the compressor and do you have power steering?

Thanks
John

Ross has designed one of the simplest and probably easiest to make brackets for mounting a Sanden compressor on an inline 8. My only concern was the long unsupported belt lengths since he does use one fan belt for the compressor and PS. It has been almost 8 years since he did this first one and believe there have been others made since then. Don't recall him mentioning any issues with belt whipping so if that is the case there would be no need to figure out an extra pulley to drive the compressor. If interested in this approach you might contact him and see if there are updates or anything he has done differently.

Has anyone come up with a bracket and pulley that uses a shorter belt or pair of belts more like the original factory air? Also, do the Sanden compressors use the same fitting size that the factory A/C used?
